Beyond the Sunset


yellow flower



Dear Dad,

     Hi there! Hey, I came to visit the other day. I didn't see you. I suppose you weren't there. It was too grassy where we left you. But don't worry, someone will clean up the place soon. I hope you got what I
left for you there, a candle on the ground next to the yellow flowers. I visited next one of your favorite places in town. You remember? that area where you used to fish? where the sun meets the sky at the end of the day and where I used to sit around and watch you with your fish-net running towards the waves...I went there but didn't see you though I have to admit, the wind, the clouds, the air, the sun, the flowers...they all told me you are happy now....wherever you may be......

.....and I know that someday, we will meet again...to watch the sunset together...if it does set too...
in heaven....

Love,
Zenserly

a post, in memory of my dad


Sunset by the bridge
Baroro Bridge, October 2012... three years after dad traveled beyond 
the sunset....



I was already done publishing this post when out of the blue I remembered a line from this song which dad used to love listening to and singing...the sentimental part of me thinks he must want me to share it to you...searched it on youtube, found many versions which didn't work on blogger...almost gave up until I found this piano and vocals rendition of someone whose voice I know you will love when you hit the play button....

thank you for your precious time.....

    Your lovely tribute to your dad is very touching, as I have the same thought when I visit my dad's grave: where are you now dad? Not going to cry, but to just look at your photos to soothe the memory!

  24. Lovely thoughts Kulasa. My own father's birthday was a few days ago, he passed away a couple of years ago. Good memories are a great comfort amongst the sense of loss.

  25. I do think we are really adults until we have to deal with the losing our parents.

    Nice post.
